Totally Useless!

Yes, that's me...totally useless at posting on time for the Totally Useless Stitch A Long!

Although there are quite a few orts in my jar, I feel like I haven't stitched for such a long time. 

I have to say a big thank you for all your wonderful get well wishes for my husband.....they were much appreciated.

I did buy a small kit to pop in my bag so that I could do some stitching while waiting for doctor and hospital appointments. This is what I treated myself to......

It's a Dimensions Gold Collection petite called 'Beacon at Daybreak'. I thought it would make a nice companion piece to the  lighthouse I did earlier in the year. You can see the finished lighthouse stitching here.

I bought 'Beacon at Daybreak' online from Amazon as my local needlework store has such a small collection of cross stitch kits and absolutely nothing that I would want to stitch. Anyhoo, I was thrilled when it arrived so quickly (thank you Amazon!) and promptly took everything out of the packaging to drool check it all out and left it on the kitchen table. And there it stayed when we had another mad dash to the emergency room at midnight when hubby lost feeling in his leg!

Even though we were in the ER for six hours, I doubt that I would have made much progress on the design as I was so tired. Hubby has another couple of doctor's appointments this week and the kit is safely tucked away in my bag....hopefully I will get a few stitches done.

Until next time...happy stitching!

Its a gorgeous kit I'm slowly working on it at the moment just watch all the half crosses and the different strands. It's crazy how much it changes but I think that's typical of dimensions gold.

I hope your hubby is feeling better soon and you stay safe and strong.
